Devotional

 
Spending time with God is vital to everyone's faith. 
We encourage you to use the scriptures and commentary
below to study and medidate on God's Word.
He will perfect that which concerns me.

We all walk through stuff that we get hit with out of nowhere

or go through things that we do not understand. I think

that is normal for Christians and for every person on the planet. 

 

The good news is that we have God’s Word to guide us and help us along the way.  

 

Just like you eat food every day, you need a fresh word from the Lord to you each day to help you with whatever may happen that day. It can help you process what God is doing and give you the strength, courage, and faith to continue on.

 

This scripture speaks a lot about what we have in the Lord:

 

Psalm 138: 7-8  Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me. The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

 

First, we all have a common enemy – Satan – that can use all kinds of different tactics against us to keep us weary and discouraged. 

 

We should look to the Lord to “revive” us during these times, which is what His word declares he will do.

 

Second, we need to memorize Psalm 138:8: that the Lord will perfect that which concerns me. 

 

What is your major source of concern today? You need to give that over to the Lord and rest in his word that he will “perfect” that which is of great or serious concern to you.

 

This means that it is in the Lord’s hands to bring you through whatever is attacking you or whatever is of concern in your life. 

 

It is a promise to you and to me! He will perfect that which concerns me. Make it personal today, speak that thing in prayer to the Lord and then repeat that verse over the situation that you are facing. Declare it openly and out loud that:

 

“He will complete, or bring to an end, that which concerns and keeps concerning me.”
